WASHINGTON. MAY 12, 1800.
com) .'may wj:atui:k.
From several illstilcts of the country
lepoits have been received Indicating
frosts, and extremely cold nnd disagree
nhlc weather for this season of theycar.
Pears nrc entertnlned nt soma points
Hint fruit nnd even tlio wheat crop
linvc been injured, or at least en
tlangcieil. Hut a "cold May storm" Is really no
new phenomenon. It furnishes Its
piota of prolific reminiscences to the
oldest Inhabitant, and ,thoih It may
be inconvenient and deleterious to gen
cial health, as an established institu
tion it must be tegaided as having a
ration d'etre. That leason, however, Is
something that scientific men are not
quite agreed about. !
The great English meteorologist Fit.
roy accounts for it by the thawing of
ice and tho absorption of heat near tho
polar circles. Other 'dentists havo
nought to account for the phenomenon
by tho southwaul drifting and gradual
melting of ice-bcrgs in the Atlnntic, in
the month of 51"ny.
The latest opinion would seem to bo
that tho tlow of cold and humid air
which is felt at this season of the year,
Is due to tho fact that In tho caily spring
the lands of tho continent become super
ficially heated through the action of the
northwanl-tcnfling sun, and that the
sen, .being colder thanthulaml, sends its
denser atmosphere to restore tho eqiit
libiium destroyed by tho rare Jlmdnir.
As long ago as In 1311 Humboldt
failed attention to the impoitanco of
tl Is phenomenon on account of its
prrcticnl bearings upon tho public
health and upon all agricultural lnter
c ts. The only advantage which can
be attributed to it is that but for its
pi c aler.ee the tonid heats of summer
would burst upon the country with a
suddenness that would be almost in
tolerable. Its counterbalancing disad
vantage is, tho inevitable rapidity of
changes of temperature.
It is accordingly a wise piccaution to
retain tho use of warm underclothing
until the season is sulllcicntly advanced,
find a neglect of this prudent measure
is very apt to lead to malatial fevers
and other sources of spring debility.

One of the slioneeat of pension cases
is that of Mary E. Jlorkc, the w idow of
a foldier of the late -war. It has ele
ments of injustice that invite special
attention. It does not appear that her
arbltiaiy discharge from "the roll' of
pensioners was justified by any pro
vision of law. Tho report recently
made In her case to the IIouso of Hep
lefentatives is as follows:
The Committee on Invalid Pensions, to
whom was lefeircrt tho bill (ll.lt. 4427)
granting a pension to Maiy E. liorke, sub
mit the following report:
This v. omim w as a pensioner of the flov-rinmoit-
Until HsbO, when her name was
dropped from tlio roll on the ground that
the was entity of adultery since the death
of the soldier, and that a child was boin as
Hie fruit of such act. There Is now In the
record the testimony of several of her
lolgbbora, who swear that, prior to this act
of adultery and since, her character for
chastity was and Is good, and she has or
picssrd great regret at her own conduct,
and that sluco'tho birth of said child she
hat kept no company with any male per
son, and she Is now living a virtuous and
lionorable life. The witnesses further
testify that her health Is very poor and
Trlttout means of a livelihood except her
own lalor, and that she Is unable to labor.
Tho committee recommend tint the bill
do paff, and let the iiuui who Is without Ma
tuft the first stone.
It is rKpiisite under the pension laws
that a soldiet's widow, to continue en
titled to pension, must not remarry, but
it is no condition of the beneficence of
the Government that sho shall rem iln
fauntlcss in her conduct. It was without
question mostunfoitunato and deplor
able that Sirs. liorke should have been
guilty of a very seilous error. Hut
neither that error nor the fruit of it, in
tho least released her fioni dependence
on her widow's pension. At a time
when unrefuted charges of a similar
kind have been freely made against
men in high olliclul and social position,
it seems hard to select this poor woman
to he alone the victim of a rigid moral
"Without doubt tho committee is right
in recommending her restoration to tho
pension rolls, and It is justified in its
rather unusual allusion to the fact that
it is the mnn without sin who Is entitled
to cast a stone In such a case.
Senator Ingalls Is reported to havo
recently said, that tho Decalogue has
nothing to do with politics. A portion
of it, however seems to havo dealt
hardly in Mary K. Borko's experience.
A cumnt'H i.niKi. M-iT is about to
to come oir in Paiis. In 1837, when
war was probable between Franco and
(ieimany, General Jloulanger was
asked by his colleagues to submit tho
papers in tho case. It was then dis
covered that the papers had all been
itolcn and that tho Germans wero In
possession of tho secrets of the Minister
of War. A smart detective traced tho
papers to tho Countess von Kessler.
Tho Countoss lived on tho Urn do
Laare, wbero lioulanger wii7ln tho
habit of amusing himself with cards,
Ono evening while he was engrossed In
a cmnc the Countess went to the Hotel
tu Louvre and succeeded in getting nt
tho General's cabinet and grabbed all
the pspirs she could lay her hand? on,

The dttcctlvo managed lo steal thcin
nil hack. The story has como out and
the Countess has begun her libel suit,
the details of which will read llfco ft
Tiir.'TAim k jh'.uatu Is probably very
useless so far as any effect it may havo
on tho convictions nf Congressmen
or eitlens generally Is concerned, but It
had not been without Us humorous
fentmes. Mr. Dlngley Inquired why
tho Jlllls" hill taxed cabbages ten per
cent., and left sauerkr.iut on tho free
list. Mr. Butter worth suggested that
cabbage was raw material while Mr.
Springer added that sauerkraut was a
manufactured aiticle. Then Mr.
Springer said the duty On eggs was a
measure of protection for ex-President
Hayes, but declared that whllo a high
duly was placed on wool the Ameri
can hog wa" dlsciiininatedagainst Inas
much as bristles wero placed on the free
list. Verily those aro important and
UKtUiit tick statutes of Illinois the
Legislature about to be elected will re
district tho Slate. Tho gerrymander
effected by the Republican majority ten
years ago has kept that parly In power
ever since, but things aro more ovenly
balanced now. When the late General
Logan was last elected to tho United
Stntes Senate there was a tic on joint
ballot for hovcial weeks which was
finally broken by the death of a Demo
cratic member and tho election. of a
Republican as his successor. If the
Democrats gain control of tho Legis
latutc they will probably exercise their
power In re districting In such a way
as to secure their interests for somo tlmo
to come. In any case it is not probable
that Senator Fai well will succeed him

Hon of the Cliargcn,
The fact that Chalrmau Quay has in
definitely postponed tho meeting of the
National Executive Committee, says a
Washington dispatch in to day's Phlla
dclphia Jleeoul, serves as tho now haslt
for the old story that President Hal rlsou
demanded an explanation from Quay of
tho charges made ngalnst him; that
Quay refused, and that Harrison there
upon demanded his resignation of tho
Chairmanship of the Republican Na
tional Committee. Of course the story
now winds up with tho declaration that
Quay postponed tho meeting of tho com
mittee to provent a demand through It
for his resignation.
This is a pretty story, but, unfortu
nately for Ilautsoii, it Is only an hides
cent dream. Harrison cannot success
fully demand cither an explanation or a
resignation from Qufty. Quay is tho
mas'ter of tho National Committee, Dud
ley nnd Clarkson nro bis lieutenants,
and the rest of the commltto being for
Quay as against Harrison, consequently
whatever Harrison, desires may he.
Troubled ns hu is by the charges, Quay
hns nothing to fear from him. If
there Is any fear between them it is felt
by Harrison, ns he looks forward to

was VHted a perfect success. Lunch was

The test developed the fact that tho
long-distance phone is destined to play
a great pari in ino ciccincai worm tn
tho future. Pince tho invention of tho
telephone in 1870 by Professor Alex
ander Graham Bell, Its use as a meaus
of quick and perfect communication
has incicased with rapid strides until
to-day thero are in uto in the United
States -jriO.OSO telephones, distributed
among 185,00!J subscribers, who uso
their telephones on an average six and
seven times a day.
In the adaptation of tho telephono to
public uses many obstacles were met
with in attempting to communicate be
tween distant points, On grounded
circuits troubles ate often encountered
from earth currents, leakage from
electric light and trolly wires and induc
tive effects from the numerous wires
strung in cities, make conversation dif
ficult and almost impossible.
The public demand for long distauco
communication increasing since the
construction of tho first lino in 1884,
the company has rapidly extended ItB
plant, which now connects tho principal
cities of the Eastern and Middle States.
During tho past year tho long distance
lines have been extended from Phila
delphia to Baltimore nnd Washington!
and a second lino has been connected
with Reading, Enston and Scranton,
and Newport, Pall River and New Bed

Eastern lines. The Ameiican Tele
